Kaleidoscope Baby Quilt

IMG_7719-1

Woot! I finally finished the top for the kaleidoscope baby quilt I’ve been working on for like the last year.

The blocks were done and just sitting, for months. Honestly, it didn’t even take that long to sew them all together once I put pedal to the metal and just did it. Funny how that happens.
Now for quilting it! I’m still pondering what to do with the quilting. It’s such a busy piecing design, and sometimes those are the hardest for me to quilt.
This week’s WIP Wednesday is brought to you by (drumroll) Fat Quarter Shop!
And speaking of baby quilts, Fat Quarter Shop has another new book coming up, called Fat Quarter Baby. The book features 20 adorable crib quilts—some bright and colorful, others calming and sleepy, but all super cute.

    I've done a number of kaleidoscope quilts but never one like that – the coloured triangles on the corners are great! It completely changes the look. I love that it's scrappy but all the same tone.

    A Kaleidoscope quilt has been on my to-do list for years (since Eleanor Burns wrote her book). Your quilt has inspired me to get out my scraps and make one! Thanks for the giveaway.

    As a long arm quilter, I would suggest quilting the white areas fairly heavy so that the colored pieces really stand out. You could even use a circular pattern to emphasize the secondary patterns created by the piecing. I love the pattern and the colors that you chose! If you get a chance, please stop by my blog…There is a picture there of a pink and black kaleidoscope quilt that I made!
